EU should stop paying the salaries of thousands of Palestinian – auditors

European auditors say the EU should stop paying the salaries of thousands of Palestinian civil servants in the Gaza Strip who are not going to work.
The auditors examined about 1bn euros (£840m; $1.3bn) of EU spending in Gaza between 2008 and 2012.
They called for a major review, saying money spent on civil servants there should go to the West Bank instead.
Many Gaza civil servants had not worked since the Islamist movement Hamas came to power in 2007, the auditors added.
